    Looks like you guys have an awesome trip. =D>

    My inlaws lived in Sprucedale for many years before moving into downtown Huntsville. I've ridden the Park to Park trail many times including many of the of the side trails. Riding in the Kearny area is one of my favorite spots.

    I ride up to Huntsville on every long weekend during the summer, staying over night at the in-laws and spending the day riding the area.

    Another great trip is to ride around Algonquin Park via logging roads and crown land areas. You can view my trip here at http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=1920391

    Cheers

    Looks cool. I am in Huntsville almost every weekend. It looks like the around Algonquin is mostly road - do you think a Vstrom could do this? Do you know of any trails near Huntsville? Thanks maybe get out for ride sometime.

    You should have no problem with the Vstrom riding around Algonquin as long as you stay on the logging roads. There are some gnarly atv trails that I went through with the Sherpa (and regretted it) which you won't want to take the Vstrom through, but you can usually detour around those sections on the logging roads. Also make sure you have decent tires as even some of the logging roads can be rough. You'll also need a good map and gps as many of the roads are intersecting with no names. I used "Back Roads" map books.

    There are many great trails north of Huntsville to Kearny. One great route is to follow Williamsport Rd which becomes a logging road with many trails off shooting from there. This logging road though is no longer maintained and there are many washouts with larger rocks protruding through the ground. I'm not sure this would be suitable for a Vstrom.

    I am ready for an around the park ride. If you are interested maybe we should get together and talk about this idea.
    It`s a good time to start some new ride plans. I already miss the trails!
